Types of storm damage
Over the past 25 years, we have seen all kinds of damage to residential and commercial buildings caused by hurricanes and winter storms. Any situation where high winds are involved puts your home or business at risk for damage. Fallen trees account for most storm damage, but there are many different ways that storms can cause damage to your property.
If your home has just experienced damage from a fallen tree then we can be there immediately to start examining the extent of the damage.

In most cases, we can provide you with a quote for your insurance company during this visit, which will allow us to get started on repairs soon after the tree has been removed.
Getting a contractor involved early on in the process can lead to a quicker insurance claim and ultimately a quicker repair of the storm damage. Most types of storm damage create a situation where your home is vulnerable to other types of damage, specifically water damage, so getting repairs done in a timely fashion can help to prevent further problems down the road.
